FPGAs in Satellites

FPGAs perform very well at computationally intensive applications, including satellite based systems. However, SRAM-based FPGAs are susceptible to the effects of radiation common in a low-earth orbit. For this reason, we are studying both the effects of radiation on FPGAs as well as techniques to make them more reliable in a radiation environment.
